profit sharing?
Yeah, we get some cash every year based on the profit the company made. It's not a lot but would make a nice down payment on a new machine.

oh, ok i gotcha. not bad.

there is a local apple reseller here that takes trades. i'm thinking about trading in my current mac pro for a new one. it's still a lot of money out of pocket though, so i'm not sure yet.

my current 2006 mac pro is producing about 17K ppd right now

yeah but again, that's a lot of money. i think i'd have to sell another system also if i did it. but your mac pro can handle bigadv unit already. mine is too old
